  1. I would really like to which particular bread do u use for your recepie they look so nice and firm? I am yet to come across such white bread that is eggless

  2. Manju aunty,
    U have become my rescue when it comes to what to prepare.Thank you so very much.My daughter has started loving me even more than before.

  3. Manjula Ji I want to know what kind of cream cheese you used and where I can find it I got one from Walmart but that looks pretty hard to me if there is any specific kind plz let me know where I can find it

  4. Cream cheese is sort of the American version of a fresh spreadable cheese like Mascarpone or Boursin. If you like to make fresh cheeses, you can do this at home, but most of us Americans just buy Philadelphia Cream Cheese. I’m going to try these tea sandwiches, Manjula. They look so light and dainty.

    1. Hi try small sweet bell pepper or try baby green peppers or known as capsicum .it will taste good . Already tried its very good.

  5. Could you please share which brand of cream cheese you used for this recipe ? Thanks!
